Stanwich students to travel to Rwanda

In Stanwich School science teacher Shaun Fletcher’s quest to find a community the school could help support over the long-term, he found Cyabatanzi, a rural Rwandan community.

That happened way back in the summer of 2008, but the school has not forgotten. From June 8 to 22, Mr. Fletcher and Upper School math teacher Jordan Alper traveled to Cyabatanzi along with nine Stanwich students and alumni to deliver aid and clothing to the village as part of Stanwich’s initiative Project Blessing.

The 10-year project includes drilling and installing a fresh water well as well as the construction of various buildings, such as a kindergarten room with a full kitchen, a library, medical center, P1-P6 primary classrooms, and full bathrooms complete with showers and a laundry room. A critical aspect of the project is the creation of a water system, a waste management system and an irrigation system in order to support a community-led fruit and vegetable farm.
